The Brazilian gay flag is derived from the national flag of Brazil by
replacing its green field with six rainbow colors, violet at the top. Its photo,
taken in Brasilia on 2013-06-05, can be found at
As can be seen, the yellow stripe is in same shade as the lozenge, which effectively conjoins them into a single charge, although the lozenge is not precisely centered on this particular flag, probably because it was hand-made and/or in a hurry to finish before the use time.
A very similar design has appeared at the GayJourney.COM website http://gayjourney.com/flags/gay_flags_national.htm and is marked as having been designed by the site’s author, Greg Gomes. The main difference is the order of rainbow stripes, red being at the top. Most of colors are also in different shades there. The use of such flags in real life has not been verified so far.
